  1. I watched the Tigers practicing on Monday. It appeared that with the exception of Miller nearly everyone was present. Someone even said that Miller was there but I did not see him. I would guess that they will be better than they were last year at four of the five positions. You would assume that the returning starters will improve with age. They definitely will have a stronger supporting cast. I could see them having eight to ten solid players. They should be taller than they were last year. They have a number of players (five or six) in the 6' to 6'2" range and they also have Jon
  2. Last years team was very hard to evaluate. If you looked at the team that went to Dallas during Christmas break it had Bush, Briscoe, Cartwright, Gilder, Harper, and Baltrip on it. That group had the potential to be a contender. At the end of the year Briscoe and Cartwright were gone which greatly reduced the offensive threats. It left much of the offensive work for Bush. He was great but could not do it all. I think the team will be better this year. They may not start off as good as last years team but I expect them to challenge everyone by the time the playoffs open. I would not

  4. What was the final on the Silsbee scrimmage. How did the Tigers look? What are their prospects for the 2020 season?
  5. I remember going to a Kirbyville scrimmage the year after Neece left and evaluating the kids. There were seven or eight people on the field who looked like stud athletes and the rest of the players on the field as well as the guys on the sidelines looked like they were 12 years old. Those kids are upperclassmen today. This was a year before Jones arrived. Jones is a pretty good coach. The team will get better in time. I think they will be better this year. Maybe not Newton but they will be better. I would not be surprised if the upcoming talent was not part of the reason that Neece left
  6. I believe this could be a great year for the Tigers. I would guess that there will be two freshmen, two sophomores and one other player on the starting unit. The freshman group is very impressive but you must remember that there were five freshman on the varsity last year and the two groups match very well. Between the two groups they pretty much have a player for every slot and almost can fill every slot on the second team. If they get to play they will have a years experience by play-off time.
  7. I think the two best gyms in our area are Livingston High School and East Chambers High School. Kountze, Evadale and Kirbyville have pretty good small school gyms. The Evadale gym was really nice when it was built (and still is) but it only holds about 800-900 (plenty big enough for their needs) and has a small court (maybe 82'). Kountze is kind of plain but it has two courts, plus a food court where you can see the action and it holds 1500 to 1600 or so people. Kirbyville is a little nicer facility but holds a few less people than Kountze. East Chambers in Winnie has a real
  8. I do not think CardinalBacker is right about his assessment. People have tried to give me details about the situation but I never understood it. He is good friends with some former coaches so I don't think it is fair to say he doesn't like football.
  9. I agree with Jamaal Charles, Christian Michaels, Steve Worster, Leland McElroy, Calvin Tyler, Fred Ford, and Kendal Cleveland. I would like to add my favorite Jay McGuire.
  10. I have always thought the 95 Silsbee team was the best of the past 30 years. Allen and Jones were not only bulky but Allen high jumped 6'8". They were good and pretty good students. I went to the state girls tournament the day they lost. I wonder if that was the last time the Montayne was full.
  11. Good Luck HJ. I am a Silsbee fan but I really like HJ this year. I think they are a much tougher match-up for Yates than Silsbee this year. If three of the Hawks are hitting from the outside and #22 and #23 are willing to maul the Lions on the inside they might surprise the Lions. I am really impressed with the play of Austin Samatha this year. Good Luck Hawks. I hope you win and then lose before we have to play you later in the tourney.
  12. This whole discussion is stupid. HJ played well and won. Bush made 11 of 23 three point shots... the rest of the team made 2 of 15. He hit for 49... Martin added 10 and the two guys who normally are the next two high scorers combined to shot 1 of 16 from the field. Who do you want shooting. Fifty years ago I played in a game in a far-a-way place where a guy hit for 66 against us. Our team won 76-74. I don't remember the names of any of the other guys on the opponents team but I remember the name of the guy who hit for 66, Philip Jennings. They kept feeding him the ball and he kept shooting. I
  13. I think Bush made 22 of the Tigers first 31 points and 27 of the Tigers last 35. HJ did a great job tonight. Now Silsbee must find a way to win their last two games and hope Hamshire can upset the Hawks. To be honest I think it might be easier to beat Yates early in the playoffs that in the regional finals. They have been playing some weak teams and it might be good to get them before they get used to tougher competition. It is a long shot to beat them anyway. I was glad to see Williams play as much as he did and to see Jones come in for him. Harper appears to play excellent defense to me. Som
